This is a weekly meme started by Sheila over at Book Journey.
Happy Monday, book junkies! Why, oh why, do the weekends go so fast? I wasn’t ready for Monday, yet. Bring on the coffee!
I finished (I say that loosely because I admit to skimming) Me Before You. Not the right timing for me to read that book and I should have never read any reviews beforehand. The suspense and anticipation was ruined for me early on, and once I got bored, I gave up. I really need to learn my lesson and not read reviews before I read a book. I think back to the days before reviews and you just read a book because it sounded good – not because you were swayed one way or the other by a review. 90% of the time, reviews are a great thing and very helpful to me, but there are times where they are too telling of the outcome of a book and it ruins my experience. I have to be more careful of the spoilery ones. I admit that I am very reliant on other readers reviews before I pick up a book. If I think a book sounds really good, but I see it doesn’t get good ratings (4 or 5 stars) on Goodreads from my peers, I usually won’t even give it a chance. How do you choose your books and do you rely on reviews?
I have finally started Nash. I love this series and hope that Jay Crownover has the magic to get me out of my book slump this week. Hope everyone has a great week, and happy reading!
